These pots are sitting right outside the front door. The two earthenware pots contain herbs. Basil and Pineapple Sage. I planted herbs in the garden, but, these pots are for my nose. Every time I open the door I get the smell of them real heavy. I have a good sense of smell, sometimes as I sit in here at the computer, I can smell them through the door. The Lantana has a sharp smell too. Mixed together it's really nice. It's calming. The more varieties of herbs I find, the better.
I think everyone has figured out by now that I deal with a lot of dysfunction and drama and just plain craziness. I can't get away from it. All I can do is look for moments of peace and tranquility. The herbs help. When I started planting herbs, my intention was to learn to cook with them. I had no idea the smell could affect my mood. I think it must be a form of aroma therapy.
